There may be a betrayal in the works among the GOP establishment in Washington D.C., as very few Senate Republicans are willing to go on the record in opposition to impeaching President Donald Trump.
Cindy Hyde-Smith (MS), Thom Tillis (NC), Roger Wicker (MS), Mike Rounds (SD), Rob Portman (OH) and Jerry Moran (KS) were the only legislators who responded with a firm stance against impeaching Trump after they were contacted by reporters from the Daily Caller News Foundation earlier this week.
Others who responded to the Daily Caller’s request refused to rule out impeachment, carefully crafting statements to give themselves some wiggle room to throw the President under the bus if it becomes politically expedient to do so.
“The whole point of the Senate’s role is to serve as a jury while evidence is presented. I won’t prejudice that responsibility by answering a hypothetical question,” Sen. Kevin Cramer (ND) said in a statement to the Daily Caller. “The House should not present articles of impeachment without evidence to support such an awesome responsibility. So far they appear on a three-year fishing expedition.”
Sen. Lamar Alexander (TN), a notorious RINO, took a similarly weak stance while claiming that he believes it is “inappropriate for the president to be talking with foreign governments about investigating his political opponents.”
“An election, which is just around the corner, is the right way to decide who should be president. Impeachment has never removed a president. It will only divide the country further. If the House impeaches the president, the Senate would be the jury. There would be many twists and turns between now and a Senate trial. Therefore, as a potential juror, I will have nothing more to say about impeachment until all the evidence is presented and all the arguments are made,” Alexander told the Daily Caller.
Sen. Jim Inhofe (OK) was also squishy in his response, only saying that he refused to back impeachment “at this time.” Many other Senators either refused to respond to the requests from the Daily Caller, or pointed to previous statements they had made regarding impeachment that were inconclusive.
Very few lawmakers are willing to go on the record with a strong showing of support for the President, as they apparently care more about their standing within the swamp than doing the right thing heading into 2020. This suggests that the fix may be in, and the power elite may not allow the next presidential election to take place because Trump will likely win.
Yesterday, Trump loyalists in Congress – including prominent members of the House Freedom Caucus – staged a demonstration to draw attention to the secretive nature of the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry:

We want more transparency on behalf of the millions of people we represent. Democrats have engaged in secret interviews, selective leaks, performances of transcripts that never happened, and lies about whistleblowers. pic.twitter.com/0kvVHaKJsB

If Republicans in the Senate have the audacity to join the political establishment and betray Trump by voting for impeachment, there will be plenty of resistance against their efforts.
COWARD: Sen. James Lankford Grovels to Black Constituents for Opposing Electoral Fraud
Lankford is an ethnomasochist.
Since last week’s siege on the U.S. Capitol, there has been a tremendous amount of groveling from Republican cowards desperate to save face and avoid media scrutiny, but Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) has taken it to a new low.
Lankford issued a letter apologizing to his black constituents for opposing electoral fraud. He is sorry because the areas that committed the most fraud just so happened to be diverse inner-city communities. Multiculturalism means that fraud is ignored, and it is our national strength. This is the credo of the New America.
The Oklahoma senator wrote that his efforts “caused a firestorm of suspicion among many of my friends, particularly in Black communities around the state. I was completely blindsided, but I also found a blind spot.”
“What I did not realize was all of the national conversation about states like Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, was seen as casting doubt on the validity of votes coming out of predominantly Black communities like Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Detroit,” he wrote.
“After decades of fighting for voting rights, many Black friends in Oklahoma saw this as a direct attack on their right to vote, for their vote to matter, and even a belief that their votes made an election in our country illegitimate,” he added.
Lankford’s pathetic obsequious letter apologizing for fighting the vote steal shows why the Republican Party is dying, and Republican politicians are despised by their own rank-and-file party members. There is little difference between a GOP elected official and a social justice activist these days.
“I can assure you, my intent to give a voice to Oklahomans who had questions was never also an intent to diminish the voice of any Black American. I should have recognized how what I said and what I did could be interpreted by many of you,” he wrote. “I deeply regret my blindness to that perception, and for that I am sorry.”
Big League Politics has reported on how the Capitol riot forced RINOs to show their true colors and publicly express the disdain they have always held for President Trump:
Mitch McConnell is reportedly “pleased” about the possibility of Trump’s second impeachment, viewing it as an opportunity to purge Trump from the Republican Party and whatever else Conservative Inc. deems “toxic.”
In a New York Times report published Monday afternoon, Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman write that the outgoing Senate Majority Leader believes Trump committed “impeachable offenses.” McConnell also welcomes impeachment in order to justify dumping Trump and shedding his influence over the GOP.
“Mr. McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, has indicated that he wants to see the specific article of impeachment that the House is set to approve on Wednesday, which is expected to draw support from as many as a dozen Republicans, potentially including Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the party’s No. 3 in the House,” the report reads. “But he has made clear in private discussions that he believes now is the moment to move on the weakened lame duck, whom he blames for causing Republicans to lose the Senate.”
The Republican Party can either become the Trump party moving forward or go extinct. With cowards like Lankford among the ranks, they may actually choose extinction because they’re that weak.
